SALONE DEL MOBILE 2017

Hello! This post remained “frozen” for a while, because of my recent work commitments, so this year I’m in huge delay about the last trends about interior design. But I took some interesting pictures, to catch the atmosphere I breathed.

Let me reassume simply what’ll be trendy next season:

– First of all, we’re back in the 70’s: geometric shapes, flashy colours, fancy wallpapers, round armchairs: if you’re a nostalgic, this is the perfect time for you.
– Make way for rich fabrics and materials: velvet and taffeta are the protagonist of the home, giving a cozy, warm touch, together with the classic marble – or cultured marble for the table surfaces. –
– Let’s have fun combining particular colours: dark moss green with yellow, powder blue with orange, and so on.
– Greenery is good!: wallpaper and pouffs with palms, but also great profusion of plants and vases everywhere, and also cupboards with leaves and blossoms motifs.

POSTCARDS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD: BERLIN

“Per visitare Berlino bisogna saper vedere anche quello che non c’è più e saper intuire una ingannevole realtà. Qui gli eventi sono cicatrici sul volto della storia, ma la loro capacità evocativa è intatta. A Berlino nulla resta più visibile di ciò che si cerca di cancellare.”

“To visit Berlin must be able to see what is not here anymore, and be able to grasp a deceptive reality. Here events are scars on the face of history, but their evoking ability is unaltered. In Berlin nothing remains more visible than what you are trying to delete.”

(Johann Bernhard Merian)

SUMMER MELANCHOLIA

Hello! How are you? I never thought I would be absent from the blog for all August, but between work and finally the summer holidays, time just flew.
In these days I’m just trying to recollect emotions, images, faces, scents of the places we visit in the last two weeks in Thailand.
I’m trying to put into words all the sensations, the emotions that this trip has given to me, and I’m realizing that it’s a difficult task.
Because Asia has a special charm. It bewitches and enchants you, with its own strenghts and its flaws. Asia has so much to teach every time you meet it: always new knowledges, new flavours to absorb. Asia is the land for discoverers “par excellence”, the country where to get lost and then find yourself.

Even now, with enchanted eyes, I’ll tell you about “my” amazing Thailand, so stay tuned and get ready to leave with me! Cris

POSTCARDS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD: ROME

I love Rome. I really never heard someone bringing back a negative memory about this beautiful city.

I’m always astonished by the magnificence of its monuments. So many centuries of history enclosed into few kilometres walk.

I’m always overwhelmed by the warmth of the people. Romans are open, cheerful, even a bit “caciaroni” (that means noisy), yes, and i love it.

Rome is romanticisme: walk on sunset following the Tevere River, take dinner in one of the tiny restaurants in Trastevere: is just the perfect way to end the day.

I love Rome from above: go up to the panoramic viewpoints on the Roman hills and enjoy beautiful views.

Rome is perfect just in the way “she” is, with its chaos, its imperfections, its contradictions.

POSTCARDS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD: LOS ANGELES

LA is a city that you can love and hate at the same time. It’s too big, too messy, too chaotic. But it makes you dream, because after all, Los Angeles means Hollywood, the myth, the chance of a life. It means sun, palm trees and neverending golden beaches, from glamorous Malibu to multiethnic Venice Beach.

POSTCARDS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD: LONDON

When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life: by seeing London, I have seen as much of life as the world can show.” Samuel Johnson 

“Non troverai nessuno, soprattutto un intellettuale, che voglia lasciare Londra. Quando un uomo è stanco di Londra, è stanco della vita: a Londra c’è tutto ciò che questa vita possa offrire.”
